For the ultimate Tuscan retreat, reserve this entire 34 acre Borgo (or walled hamlet), with a large lake and a 12th century Castle, a Romanesque church, two village houses, and a tower ruins perfectly designed for alfresco dining.

Virtually untouched for 600 years, the castle is steeped in medieval charm, with Gothic portals, Roman mosaic floors, original wooden ceiling beams, and many antiques, of which its owner is an eminent collector.

The Estate offers three libraries, plus two bedrooms in the church sacristy, where the caretaker resides, a gym in the dungeon, a private tennis court, lake, swimming pool with wet bar, a wine cellar, and another swimming pool with waterfall.

Located approximately 45 minutes south of Florence and 20 minutes west of Siena, the estate is situated close to the medieval towns of Casole D'Elsa, Colle Di Val D'Elsa, and Sovicille.

Countless itineraries reveal the extraordinary beauty of this region, famous for its artistic, cultural and natural wealth.

Laying 500 meters above sea level, the village lies at the crest of the Montagnola Senese hills covered with ilex, oak, olive groves, wild flower meadows, as well as truffles and porcinai mushrooms. The surrounding countryside is rural and wooded, protected against future construction.
